Slashdot: Heart of the Net
«Where’s the heart of the Net now?
The odd truth is that there probably isn’t one.
The Net has become an economic and utilitarian rather than social, political or idealistic network. It has grown beyond almost anybody’s earliest imaginings to become a thoroughly mainstream and very American communications medium., thoroughly corporatized and Disnified. Its grown too diffuse to have a center. Half of the nation is now online, says the U.S. Department of Commerce, nearly 90 percent of all kids.»
